Irish Water has recently secured funding to complete works at Kiltimagh Water Treatment Plant.
That's according to Fine Gael Deputy Michael Ring, who says the works will add sufficient resilience to allow a connection from the proposed Cleragh Community Water Connection.
The existing Kiltimagh Water Treatment Plant is currently operating at the limit of its capacity.
An upgrade of the existing plant is required in order to facilitate a connection for the community in Cleragh and support future growth in the area.
The project has been handed over to Irish Water’s Asset Delivery team with an estimated works completion date of mid-2023.
In the interim, Irish Water will engage with Cleragh CWC and Mayo County Council Rural Water Section with a view to progressing the network extension works required to facilitate the proposed connections.
Once a detailed design has been finalised and a proposed contractor approved, Irish Water will work with the Rural Water Section to ensure alignment between the completion of the Water Treatment Plant upgrade works and the network extension works.
